the possibility of allegations of voter fraud. they have all these polls with obama running away with this. people blow a gasket on the left if romney wins. they're also early voting going on right now. we know that this stuff is not reported to reflect opinion, they're trying to shape opinion with these polls. >> greta: is rush right? are these polls slanted toward democrats and toward president obama? let's bring in our expert panel. steve, first to you. number one, are the polls slanted in number two, the second part of the question, does that suppress the vote? >> look, i think if you're just looking at "the new york times"/cbs poll, you believe everything you see in the polling of florida and ohio today, the results that came out today, yes, i think they oversampled democrats. i don't think there's any question about it. it would mean a record turnout in those states to produce the kinds of results we saw. now that doesn't mean these polls are useless. if there's consistent oversampling inside a poll, like the cbs/"new york times" poll has been, plus eight or nine for democrats, so you can se
president obama? let's bring in our expert panel. steve, first to you. number one, are the polls slanted in number two, the second part of the question, does that suppress the vote? >> look, i think if you're just looking at "the new york times"/cbs poll, you believe everything you see in the polling of florida and ohio today, the results that came out today, yes, i think they oversampled democrats. i don't think there's any question about it. it would mean a record turnout in those states to produce the kinds of results we saw. now that doesn't mean these polls are useless. if there's consistent oversampling inside a poll, like the cbs/"new york times" poll has been, plus eight or nine for democrats, so you can see trends inside of that, even if they're oversampling. so they're not useless, but if that's all they're looking at they don't you good sense of where the race us right now. >> greta: michael? >> well, greta, pollsters want to get it right. the idea that there's a conspiracy that they're trying to root for one side, that they're trying to depresses one side's turnout, to me it
, but the sizzling question who hats edge. polls in swing states showing president obama pulling ahead of governor mitt romney, but not so fast. dick morris, author of new book "here come the black helicopters" has something to say about the polls. he joins us. nice to see you, dick. dick, you may be perhaps the only one who's saying that these polls suggest that governor romney is winning. please tell me how you arrive at that. >> sure. well, karl rove i think has some thoughts like that. let me go through it. what's going on now is these polls are assuming that you have the same high level of african american, latino and young people vote in 2012 that you had in 2008. not the normal level, which you had in '04, '00, '06 and so on. the pollsters are awaiting the data to assume you have that level. so, for example, in 2008, 14% of the vote was cast by african americans. in 2004, in all the other years, only 11% was. in 2010, only 11% was. so what the pollsters is doing is weighting up the number of black interviews, giving them more weight so that they account for 14% of the sample, not 11%. for y
this weekend, "miami herald" poll conducted by mason-dixon, it's 48 obama, 47 romney. and brad cokier, the pollster says ground game will decide it. virginia effectively tied. north carolina effectively tied. in every one. those states, greta, we believe we'll be able to increase the evangelical turnout from the 2008 baseline by an average of about 7%. and when that happens, there's going to be a lot of shocked faces in a lot of newsrooms all across america. >> greta: let me take ohio, for example. let's take one. 18 electoral college votes. you think you have enough -- there are enough evangelicals who have not been counted in this poll that are going to vote for -- that were going to vote for president obama, you think you can get to them to make the difference in that state, for instance? >> i do. the interesting thing about this, greta, here we are in the age of internet, you know, cable tv, smartphones, you know, tablets, and all this amazing technology, and where has all this technology taken us? it's taken us to an air war of mutual assured destruction where both sides are thro
't bother to go to the polls four years ago when barack obama was elected. about half of those because they weren't registered to vote. about half were registered to vote didn't bother to come. the first thing we focused on and voter registration continues in most states through october 6th or 9th, in some states like wisconsin you can go through to election day, we're making sure that at a minimum they're registered, they're informed, they're educated. second thing we're doing, greta, we're distributing over 51 million copies of a nonpartisan voter guide that shows where mitt romney and barack obama stand on 10 key issues from economy to jobs, taxes and spending, healthcare, marriage, the right-to-life, and other key issues, including the obama mandate on religious charities, which will be devastating to many not only catholic but protestant hospitals, colleges, universities and schools, and every one of these issues stands is footnoted, righ either in thr own words, off a speech they gave, book they wrote, 90% in their words. we'll let the voters make the decision. >> greta: what do
